Hope in the Midst of Grief
Crossway has published a video from Nancy Guthrie about what it means to offer grief support as a Christian. Nancy is an excellent teacher and I have learned a great deal from listening to her podcasts and reading her Bible studies. But I have been particularly encouraged by the way she has responded to the death of two children. Her book What Grieving People Wish You Knew about What Really Helps (and What Really Hurts) is very good.
For a longer and more detailed reflection on the subject of grief I encourage you to listen to a conference speech she gave in 2011 entitled, 6 Ways to Make Your Church a Safe Place for Sad People. You can listen to it by clicking HERE.
